February 10 2003
Got up at around eight. Read the paper in bed. Grandma Betty came and we had breakfast. Fun talking to her although Kathy and I got in an argument about my impression that she likes to fight. Betty got up to leave. She couldn’t stand it. Ouch! Kathy smoothly changed the subject (sometimes it pays to be a therapist).

Went for a walk, joined Kathy on the road. Talked it out. Felt good.

Made pinto beans. Best batch I’ve ever made. Really seasoned well. Had salsa, flower tortillas and pintos for lunch with Kathy. Decided we’ll stay married. Ha.

Worried about the travel cover. Bob McCubbin really dislikes it, thinks it has nothing to do with history. Going to take a look at it tomorrow.

Have a bunch of artwork I want to do. Finally got started around noon. Got a very good rough sketch of Bass Outlaw gunfight going, then switched gears and tried to get a blurry image. Ruined three or four. Want to show the fuzzy image Selman saw because Outlaw shot right in his face and the gunpowder blinded him. Can’t quite get it. That stuck me, or I got stuck. Couldn’t move. I hate when that happens.

Here’s scenes I want to do:
• Overview of Outlaw, Madame Tillie and Ranger McKidrick in back yard.
• long view of fight with Tillie fleeing and background buildings.
• Three lawmen, two soiled doves and a cartridge in a bidet
• Trophy Husband CD cover: Walk With Evil
• two illustrations for Westin Hotel
• Travel cover image
• Three riders from Buffalo Bill book
• Nympho Rodeo artwork

It’s good for me to list them because they kind of roll around in my head and overwhelm me. I’m writing this at 5:20. May take a shower. Want to get some good art finished. Did a sketch or two after a shower. Ate dinner, leftover salmon. Had chocolate milk for dessert. Watched the end of “The Importance of Being Ernest” then “The Banger Sisters.” Liked both.

Physicists and astronomers see their own implications in the world being round, but to me it means that only one-third of the world is asleep at any given time and the other two-thirds is up to something.”
